Are there boards on the shelf because the people placing the orders are "doing a terrible job"?

Or is it because the economy has been so bad lately, further punctuated by a lack of snowfall across the country, that people are not buying boards? There are deadlines and order minimums that stores must meet in order to carry certain products for next year.

Think about it..

edit- oh just to mention -talking sale for current 2014 gear, I see some are still trying to flog off their old 2013 gear.

I think its cool if you can go to your local, they have what you want and then are willing to talk turkey on price (particularly if your buying multiple items).
Screw supporting guys that are just trying to flog boards with bullshit advise and stuck on full retail, local or not.
Agreed. A lot of "shops" have terriblly uninformed sales people as well...which doesn't help.

WillyFister?052 I did notice they was laid out the same. My local shop is in conjunction with ski park i would normally goto. Not sure if they would have a huge mark up on prices. I plan on getting a season pass for next year, maybe they will give a discount for that. Right on thanks. The House/proboard had the best deal on a board i been dreaming of.

It's just The House. Same company, same product. You'll notice how the sites are set up exactly the same.
